The following species are native to southeastern Massachusetts and grow well in sandy soils. Many tolerate, and often thrive, in both salt spray and windy conditions of the coast. Species marked with an asterisk* also tolerate intertidal zones (the area between low tide and high tide). Species marked with ** are great for freshwater shorelines. Please see individual plant pages for more information, and note this page is still a work in progress.
